program was written after I had tried Logger by Benjamin Wrightson
which provided the inspiration for this worse looking piece
of software, which has some features missing from his.
The program runs in the taskbar area where it looks like or
and will log date, time, user, minutes, message in a .csv
type file for events on the system.
Session Start / Logon
Session End / Logoff
Dial up Connection start
Dial up connection end
Right click on the taskbar icon for a menu, double click to
open the main window or mouseover to see a hint with session
and online times.
After a Session / Connection has lasted more than a user settable
time the icon will change from green to red.
Settable options (stored in registry) are
crash recovery log name
minutes before changing colour
minutes between writes to crash recovery log
widths of date,time,user
elapsed times as h:mm or mmm mins
entry in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
see a fuller listing of the log, press the Show Log button.
program is freeware, written in Delphi3 and comes with full
version 184.108.40.206 dated 10 Nov 2002 (829Kb), the program itself
is only 330Kb.
Fix Options Browse dialogs to show the correct settings, both
were calling the same dialog and setting the recovery file
Change to Showlog to only show log when needed. Change to
bring existing copy to front if new copy was run, useful if
explorer dies. Fix to stop multiple copies running on NT,
where window names changed case. Changes to fixes for EOutOfResources
errors sometimes it ignored the over 64KB fix.
Change Active session detection from EnumWindows to RasEnumConnections.
This works on Windows NT4.0 as well as Windows 95 and 98.
